To kick off an inspiring season, we asked actress and style maven Jessica Biel to design her dream holiday room. Bursting with ideas for the space, Biel curated a board full of inspiring images — lush garlands and greenery, antique Chinoiserie, dramatic evening gowns, graphic gift wrap, quiet English gardens, brass lanterns, peppermint bark, and gilded frames. Along with our editor-at-large Estee Stanley, director Mat Sanders, and the Domaine team, Biel designed a cozy and elegant interior that’s ideal for enjoying family and friends, unwrapping presents, and sipping on mulled wine.
She wanted the space to reflect her personal style: comfortable and elegant, with an appreciation for beautiful things. The room would need to feel homey, yet have a touch of drama and edge. A timeless, plush black and white wide-striped sofa rose to the challenge creating a gorgeous base for the space — and made the perfect accompaniment to a Coco Chanel-inspired Christmas tree, which was dripped with pearls, black ribbon, and white leather flowers. A supple leather Danish modern armchair injected just the right amount of seasonal color and was beautifully balanced with elegant greenery. For an element of surprise, a salvaged stone table top from Brenda Antin was placed on two stacks of fashion and art books, transforming it into a casual and inviting coffee table.

I’d be cool with that being a room in my house.
